Very smart move on the part of both BAT & XXII to sign an agreement to advance the two companies utilizing XXII's proprietary properties. Great things to come for those vested in both. Below from the N/R by both BAT & XXII

“This partnership with British American Tobacco, which sells product in approximately 180 countries, represents 22nd Century’s greatest growth milestone to date and an important step in the development of 22nd Century’s next generation tobacco products. BAT has always been our first choice as a partner,” stated Joseph Pandolfino, 22nd Century’s Founder and Chief Executive Officer.

Gary Nicholson, BAT’s Head of Global Leaf Research, stated that “BAT is excited to be working with 22nd Century in this area of developing technology. This work is part of BAT’s ongoing Research & Development activities relating to tobacco products.”
